  • Women to admire

    “One, two, three, four, five,” said 15-year-old Brittany Ware as she took inventory of the glinting gold medals she has accrued over a seven-year involvement with Special Olympics, an athletic organization and competition for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Twelve silver and bronze medals sat nearby waiting to be counted – as did a nest of multicolored ribbons. 

  • SCHS locker room a source of...

    The Bears now have a den of their own.

    Through contributions of money, time and hard work, the Spencer County High School football team has a locker room to be proud of. After previously being assigned to the visiting locker rooms in the basketball gym, which meant a long walk from the field, their new space is bigger, closer and a source of pride.

    “Until this point, our football team didn’t have a true locker room,” said Coach Wes Napper.

  • Bears front line will be key to...

    They are usually the easiest to spot on the field, but the hardest to name from the stands. These are typically the biggest, meanest and dirtiest guys on a football team, but they are also the most anonymous.

    They’re the offensive line and while they don’t get the attention or credit of the guys who score the touchdowns, their efforts are just as important.

    For Spencer County’s 2010 football season, a large, seasoned line might be the team’s most potent weapon.

  • J.D. Shelburne softball showdown

  • Time trial event returns

    The 2010 USA Cycling Masters Road National Championship kicked off Tuesday in Taylorsville with hundreds of cyclists competing in the individual and tandem time trial event. Over 800 riders are expected to participate this week in other related events in Louisville.  Cyclists, age 30 and above, are duking it out for the more than 60 national titles in the road race, criterium, and time trial events. 

  • Meet the 2010-11 Spencer County...

    It could be a big 2010 for the Spencer County Bears football team.

    They’ve got a big, experienced offensive line. They’ve got a big-time prospect in senior running back Erico Smith. And they’ve got a schedule full of big schools that will provide some challenging competition to help prepare them for the postseason.

    So do those things mean fans should have big expectations? Second year head coach Wes Napper thinks that’s reasonable, especially since his own expectations are pretty high.

  • $ypher trial needs Andy Rooney,...

    Rick Pitino strode through the valley of the shadow of humiliation last week.

    As expected, Louisville’s coach was more than a match for the defendant’s attorney in the Karen $ypher trial. But, when asked how long his dalliance with $ypher lasted, Pitino issued a gaffe that made him into a punch line.

    “Fifteen seconds.”

    Excuse me? Pitino had to be thinking half-court how-to with the clock running down. This remark could earn Pitino a place with the other Unforgettables who said:

    “Well, I am not a crook,”  

  • Cyclists wheel into town Tuesday

    Pedal power will be on display in Spencer County next Tuesday as the U.S. Cycling Master’s National Time Trial Championships are held here for the second consecutive year.

    Troy Killian, director of operations for the Louisville Sports Commission, said the event will return to Taylorsville because of its success last year, when nearly 1,000 riders showed up for a 14-mile timed event.

    “Last year was very successful. We had great cooperation from everyone out there and the athletes really enjoyed it.”
